Traffic safety continues to be a priority for the Toronto Police Service.
The 65th NBA All-Star weekend will run from Thursday, February 11, 2016 to Sunday, February 14, 2016. There will be events in various locations throughout Toronto. Event organizers are anticipating sell-out crowds at most of the venues.
Various road closures will be in effect around the venues, and traffic is expected to be heavier than usual.
The Toronto Police Service is urging spectators who are attending events to make safe transportation choices to and from these events.
We remind everyone who will be driving, to be responsible, plan ahead and make smart choices about your transportation.
The Toronto Police Service is also encouraging citizens to assist police in the war against impaired driving by calling 9−1−1 if they believe another driver may be impaired.
The message is clear: DO NOT DRINK OR USE DRUGS AND DRIVE.
